at 20 kelly said he landed the best for his team. agholor, over 1300 yards, 12 touchdowns, he draws comparisons to recently departed whited receiver journey maclin, according to kelly he is more versatile. the only measurable kelly might value more than versatility is football iq. agholor has that, and then some. you. >> you know, he is like a sponge when it is just the game of football. when he came here, we had him on visit here, you know, he had -- we are were in the room with him for a long time, because the questions he had for us about how do we attack this coverage, what do we do here, one of those guys real a student of the game. and i think you get excited when you are around guys like that. >> i like to learn all trades of the game, i like the outside, the inside. so i feel like i'll be given a opportunity to soak in as much knowledge as i can handle, then hopefully i help the guys the best way i can. >> now, coming up a little later, what do the current eagles think about their new
